During our stay in Nagasaki we took a ferry to visit an island that has been designated as a World Heritage UNESCO site, called Gunkanjima. It lies just off the coast of Nagasaki and looks like a stone fortress. This fortress held a coal mine that also acted as a city because the people who worked there also lived there.

On one of the days here in Japan we had the chance to visit the peace park in Hiroshima. It was near the hypocenter of the atomic bombing and nearly everything in this area was destroyed. One building that should have been destroyed, the Genbaku Dome, remained standing and it was one of the few places that stood semi-intact that close to the detonation of the bomb. It was amazing to see a building with so much left intact that close to the hypocenter. Nearly everything was destroyed in Hiroshima, but for some reason, that building remained standing.
